Matthew L.M. Fletcher (that’s me) just published “Federal Indian Law” as part of the West Academic hornbook series. Here’s the blurb:
Fletcher’s Hornbook on Federal Indian Law is a deep survey of the history and substantive law governing the relations between the three American sovereigns, federal, state, and tribal. Interwoven are issues of federalism, administrative law, constitutional rights, and international relations. This hornbook includes original research and novel analysis of foundational Supreme Court decisions and critical federal statutory schemes – the stories beyond the stories. In addition to delving into the origins and histories of cases and statutes, the hornbook analyzes modern Indian rights settlements, the international and comparative frontiers of Indian law, and the future of the field.
If you want a preview of the table of contents and the index, see here (PDF).
You can buy the hornbook from West and Amazon.
